Could you give the exact error messages, and the exact command you used.

The configuration is the same regardless the way you've installed bind.
The "service" command does not work, because if you used just ./configure without a prefix, then named is installed at /usr/local/sbin. So to start it you can run:
/usr/local/sbin/named -u named
assuming that you want it to run under the userid named.
